HC Deb 21 March 1907 vol 171 cc871-2
MR. FLYNN (Cork, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, whether, in connection with Instruction to Inspectors, No. 50, part 4, under date 9th March, 1906, the Estates Commissioners can now state whether land is available for evicted tenants whom it is not found possible to reinstate in their former holdings in the hereinafter named localities, county Cork, where untenanted land is plentiful, namely, Castlemagner and Cecilstown. Newmarket, Dromtariff and Dromagh, and Doneraile; if so, what amount is available in each of these localities respectively; and, if this information is not yet in the possession of the Estates Commissioners, will they, in view of the considerable number of evicted tenants seeking for equivalent holdings, direct their inspectors to make immediate inquiry in regard to the localities named.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that they are not aware that any untenanted land is avail- able in the localities mentioned, so far as they have been able to identify such localities. If the names of the townlands in which it is suggested that untenanted land exists, and the names and addresses of the owners or their agents, should be furnished to the Commissioners they will have inquiries made.
